I have succesfully installed interchange on my local system and i am going
to design a shopping site so I purchased a package for hosting so I can host
my site....

When i try to configure it or perl Makefile.PL , I get the following error :
opendir(./../..): Permission denied at /usr/lib/perl5/5.00503/FindBin.pm
line 143
Can't write uid file: Permission denied

How can i fix this prob?
The server is running on linux
